Though Parker has alternated between power and small forward, the Bulls' initial plan is to start him at small forward, a position of need. That may soon become a reality because, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, talks between the former No. 2 overall pick and the Bulls are trending towards an agreement.
Parker, who has spent his first four National Basketball Association seasons with the Bucks, is now a restricted free agent.

The Chelsea players have been informed about the decision and were given the afternoon off from pre-season training on Thursday. The Italian had two contrasting campaigns at the helm and has now vacated his post.
Parker is a restricted free agent, which gives the Milwaukee Bucks matching rights. Standing 6-foot-8 with a 250-pound frame, Parker can cause huge headaches for opposing teams, partly because he can easily cause mismatches on the floor.
Parker, 23, has played his entire career thus far with the Milwaukee Bucks but could switch teams this offseason. The forward averaged 12.6 points with 1.9 assists and 4.9 rebounds. Maybe the Milwaukee Bucks made a decision to give Parker a sizable deal, or maybe another team will swoop in and pay the 25-year-old wing. Don't be surprised if they try to bring Parker home.
